3.0 out of 5 stars An improvement over the previous game., 29 Oct 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Crysis 3 - Hunter Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Crysis 3 takes place 20 years after the events of the first and second game, in a world governed by the cell co-corporation who now harness unlimited energy from the tech of the Seth aliens defeated in the second game. You return as Prophet rescued by your former squad mate named Psycho to fight the cell co-corporation and Seth aliens, so once again your saving the world from the brink of destruction. The story was kind of ridiculous which is expected from a first person shooter, and the dialogue was also silly but the exceptional production values and great graphics makes this one of the best looking shooters out there. The levels were also fun and I liked the visual style of the decimated New York City. Crysis 3 retains the ultra-high resolution textures, realistic lighting and impressively realistic water effects, but opens up the game world with sprawling outdoor environments that bring the series back to its roots. Gameplay remains fairly unchanged too, although the Nano suit still gives you the freedom to approach each new level in stealthy silence or with an all-guns-blazing frontal assault. I managed to beat Crysis 2 with Armour mode almost permanently engaged as there was never an effective way to stay cloaked when picking off enemies - something developer Crytek has addressed for the sequel. Prophet can now use a composite bow, which is fired silently without draining your suit's cloak energy. Different arrow heads let you electrocute enemies and cause explosions, and although ammo is limited, you can retrieve your arrows from fallen foes. It's with the bow that Crysis 3 shines brightest - each new area becomes a puzzle, letting you work out the best way to pick off patrolling CELL troopers without being spotted or setting off the alarms. Another great new added feature is the nano suit's ability to hack gun turrets which in effect ends up shooting the enemy A.I. instead. However the main problem with this game is that it starts off so strong and promising, until the 3rd half which becomes a bit dull and predictable. Still unlike the previous game, Crysis 3 thankfully has a short game play length and will probably appeal to fans of the previous games. Overall, the game was not too bad but not great either, Bioshock Infinite was way better, plus it had a unique steam punk world which was fantastic.
